Frequently Asked Questions About Our Laser Treatments

What is Cutera laser?
  • Technically, the Cutera XEO Laser is a long pulsed neodymium: yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser – a source of light energy to which attachment heads are applied and settings adjusted depending upon the condition being treated, skin and hair color and texture, and the depth of penetration required. 
  • The key is to heat treat the appropriate layer of skin depth leaving the layers on top cool and undamaged.
What else can this laser do?
  • Unwanted facial and body hair can be permanently eliminated. Leg veins can be targeted and destroyed, as can fine dilated facial blood vessels (telangiectasias). The XEO CoolGlide hand pieces can treat unwanted pigment changes, such as sun spots, aging spots, birthmarks, and rosacea. 
  • In photo rejuvenation mode, the laser provides heat to the underlying dermis to stimulate collagen growth, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
What I can expect?
  • The process starts with a consultation, which is FREE of charge. Laser therapy is a time-consuming but relatively straightforward process. The area under treatment must be shaven the days before. 
  • This newest generation laser minimizes any burning sensation since the attachment head is cold water cooled. Treatment sessions may last 15-45 minutes. 
  • You can expect a pink or reddish painless discoloration of treated areas, usually lasting several hours. You may be asked to use ace wraps, support stockings, or to avoid sun exposure for a short time afterward, depending upon the area treated. You'll be provided specific instructions at the time of treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
  • Leg veins usually require 2 treatment sessions and hair removal 3-6 sessions (usually 4). Photo rejuvenation with the XEO Laser Genesis attachment requires the greatest number of treatment sessions (usually 4, each separated by 2 weeks). Obviously, a more precise estimate of treatment duration will be available at the time of your initial consultation.
